Leticia Contreras, a third-year Hampshire College student, has been selected by Campus Compact as a Newman Civic Fellow.
College and university presidents from 30 states nominated the 135 honorees, described by Campus Compact as “the best of the best: promising college leaders who have demonstrated an investment in finding solutions for the challenges facing communities throughout the country.”
Thank you to everyone who attended our 30th anniversary conference, From Abortion Rights to Social Justice: Building the Movement for Reproductive Freedom. It was great to have you here. It was a weekend full of thought-provoking and inspiring workshops and interactions. We hope that you left inspired and rejuvenated and ready to take action.
Please stay in touch with us and keep us posted on any new collaborations that were formed or new approaches to your work as a result of the conversations and networking that happened at the conference.
We are committed to convening an activist conference that meets your needs and interests. To do this, we need your feedback and suggestions!
On April 8-10, 2011, over 1,200 students and community activists from 152 campuses and over 300 organizations came together for a weekend of workshops, discussions, learning, networking and movement building to revitalize political passions, energy and imagination, and to celebrate our collective leadership and strength.
*Please note: The dates for CLPP's Summer Leadership Institute are now June 20-23, 2011. It was recently brought to our attention that the Institute overlapped with the Allied Media Conference and we wanted to make sure people who wanted to could go to both.
Join activists from across the country in Rensselaerville, NY as they engage in interactive trainings, Lifetimes of Activism mentoring, project development, and movement building!

This weekend was my first time experiencing the amazing and inspiring Civil Liberties and Public Policy (CLPP) conference at Hampshire College…and just in time for its THIRTIETH anniversary (commemorated by three large dance break-outs/parties in just two days). I’ve honestly been exposed to so much that my head is still spinning, and I will send out recaps from the workshops as I process all of the information over the next week.
